She captioned the image, "Before the incident. Olivier handles with a bit more grace". Berry also took to Instagram to wish her son a happy birthday and wrote, "Five years ago I doubled my blessings. Happy birthday MACEY MACE!". "We love you SO much Macey Mace! Happy Birthday!" she wrote on another image from the birthday party.
The couple split up in October 2015, but only confirmed their divorce in 2017. They welcomed their only son Maceo on October 5 in 2013. Berry is also mother to 10-year-old Nahla Ariela whom she had from her earlier relationship with Gabriel Aubry. As reported by People, a source shared that the former couple Berry and Martinez are amicable and on good terms for the sake of their son.
"They are devoted to their children and co-parent quite amicably. That is their new normal," the source added. "He loves being a dad". In July, Berry shared a rare picture which showed Maceo while they were on a family vacation to Bora Bora.
Despite having a busy schedule, Berry loves to spend time with her two children and told People, "It’s all kid-related. When I happen to have free time I am always thinking about what can I do with them. What can I do to have those moments really matter? I want that quality time because I know quantity is sometimes limited."
"You don’t ever balance it completely. It’s a constant struggle of a little more time there, a little more time here, and feeling a little bit guilty all the time. I just keep telling all my mom friends who work that it’s ok to give ourselves a little slack sometime and not let the guilt sit on us so heavily and know that we are doing the best we can," she shared. "Having careers and being fulfilled that way makes us better mother," she explained.
"It makes us better able to operate in our careers with a sense of compassion and empathy that make us better businesswoman. We have to have them both and we have to keep trying to figure it out. And we get it wrong sometimes. And guess what, that is okay too," Berry added.
When asked about what advice she would give her younger self, she shared, "I like where I have arrived. I assume my successes and my failures have been a part of my wonderful journey and I wouldn’t change a thing."
